Only a few days to go! Are you really going to miss Weird this year?

The world is full of the strange, mysterious and the unexplained. What are UFOs? What is the cause of paranormal activity? How did the Egyptians build their monuments and what happens after we die?

These are just some of the subjects being discussed at the Weird 11, a two day event held in Swindon, Wiltshire on the 17th and 18th of September.

Weird has established itself as a major national event and this year proudly presents some of the best known researchers and authors in the UK today. Some names you will recognise from TV documentaries and some from their best selling novels. Weird also recognises the need to promote new speakers and has also invited researchers not seen before to present their research to the public.

This year our are Robert Bauval , Graham Hancock, Andy Thomas, Marcus Allen, Lucy Wyatt, Andrew Gough, Richard Lennie, Nick Pope, Anthony Peake and Tony Eccles. This line-up has been independently rated as the best line-up at any event in the UK this year , feedback Weird was very proud to receive.

All the way from Germany we have special guests who will be showing off their Hypgnagogic Light Machine as well as the unique and fantastic art from Step Shurman.
Malcolm Robinson will be returning as our host in 2011 and will be on stage to introduce the event and introduce the speakers.

Weird also presents a live music set by the Southampton based band ‘The Program Initiative’. This young band have featured on the videos produced for this years event and their one hour set promises to be a fantastic audio and visual experience.

The Program Initiative Live at Weird 11

This year the sound of Weird 11 is provided by the up and coming band 'The Program Initiatve'.  Featuring an up-beat tempo and original track list, TPI are one of THE bands to see in 2011. 

Their latest album, available at Weird 11 will be performed by the group on the Sunday. 

This is no ordinary set by a band.  The sometimes guitar overdrive rock and sometimes ethereal music of TPI is accompanied by a projected story board - The Anomaly.

This is a fantastic music show and not to be missed!

Hypgnagogic Light Experience Comes to Weird 11

Extreme situations – i.e. during a near-death experience, in high-performance sports or deep meditation – can trigger physical or mental regeneration processes that lead to a realignment of the entire organism. In this context, interdisciplinary research demonstrated as early as in the 1980s a noticeable increase in quality of life to the point of spontaneous healing.

The persons concerned mentioned the encounter with a very bright light as the cause of these positive changes. The Viennese neurologist and founder of logo-therapy and existential analysis Viktor E. Frankl (1905-1997) described the spiritual dimension of the human being as an instance outside the range of illness.

The HYPGNAGOGIC LIGHT EXPERIENCE “taps” into this source of health in the light.
The HYPNAGOGIC LIGHT EXPERIENCE produces effortlessly and without long hours of practice:

• Quick and sustained deep relaxation
• The feeling of being outside one’s body
• Spiritual or transcendental experiences
• Being beyond time and space
• “Deceleration”
• Enhanced joy of living
• Increased learning aptitude and achievement potential

The clinical therapeutic application of the HYPNAGOGIC LIGHT EXPERIENCE has been successful in treating:

• Fear and depression
• Trauma and other psychological symptoms
• Pain
• Dependence and addiction (in prevention and therapy)
• Life and identity crises
• Burn-out
• Insomnia
• Sexual disorders and loss of libido

At Weird 11 you can see a demonstration of this machine and meet the creators!
